Undercover cop car
Came screeching to a halt
Body lying on the ground
Must be someone's fault
Circumstantial evidence
Seemed to point her way
Her right to remain silent
Was all she heard them say

Blue dress, blue eyes
Blonde hair, about five foot nine
Wrong place, wrong time
Wrong face, wrong crime

(chorus):
Mistaken identity
Could happen to you or to me
Mistaken identity
Mistaken identity
Could happen to you or to me
Mistaken identity
Mistaken identity

(i didn't do it, no, i didn't do it)
No money for a lawyer
To defend her case
Standing in the line-up
Tears rolling down her face

No one cared to listen
Someone had to take the heat
Sometimes there's no justice
When you're a victim of the street

Wrong place, wrong time
Wrong face, wrong crime (x4)

(chorus):
Tu ut tu tu tu...tu ut tut tu tu
They didn't even say
I'm sorry
Tried to put her away
In a hurry

Don't make her pay the price
She's not guilty
(guilty)
For someone else's crime
Set her free
(set her free)

I didn't
I didn't
I didn't do it no (x4)

(chorus out)
